Russia Calls on United Nations for Greater Presence in Syria

Канада и Япония договорились о военном сотрудничестве G-7 will never accept nuclear-armed North Korea, says Japanese foreign minister Taro Kono

Chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana White told reporters Thursday that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "must know the world will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons under any circumstances".

Lavrov was also quoted as saying that, prior to the US strikes on Syrian targets, Russian Federation had told USA officials which areas of Syria represented "red lines" for Moscow, and the US military action did not cross those lines.

Russia's daily Kommersant newspaper, citing unnamed military sources, reported earlier on Monday that Russian Federation might start supplying S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria in the near future.

The U.S. and Russian Federation use a so-called "deconfliction" telephone-line communication channel to avoid accidental clashes in Syria.

Syrian forces used Soviet-era air defense systems and fired 112 surface-to-air missiles to repel the US -led strikes, destroying 71 out of the 103 missiles launched by the Western coalition last week, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. The country has become a congested war zone in which multiple nations are fielding forces to pursue differing interests.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, Syrian air defense systems managed to intercept 71 out of the 103 missiles fired by the trilateral alliance at the civil and military targets within the Arab republic.


It said experts believed that Israel would react negatively to the development and might bomb the area where the missile systems would be deployed.

On Friday, the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Moscow said that the United States respected and sought out Russian positions in Syria during last week's airstrikes.

He said: "Now, we have no moral obligations".

He continued, "We took into consideration their claim that this could destabilise the situation".

The state news agency RIA also reported Lavrov saying he was convinced Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump would not allow an armed confrontation between their countries.

Delivering the S-300 system to the Assad regime would thus mark a major change in Syria's defense capabilities, since the system tracks air crafts and ballistic missiles over a range of 300 kilometers. "They are the leaders who were elected by their peoples, and they are responsible for peace and calm", he said.
